no more illegal abortion, no more coat hanger abortion. we've got to reach out and educate a younger generation. second, that younger generation really knows how to use social media. i don't. i don't have a facebook. i don't have a twitter. we've got to get more of them involved because they're really better at organizing a younger group than those of us who are somewhat old are. i think the other thing is bringing back in women of my generation who do remember what it was like. part of the case started because women who were graduate students at the university of texas were upset because at the university of texas health center you could not get contraception unless you certified you were within six weeks of marriage, so there were a lot of unplanned pregnancies, and then they were asking information about where could they go for abortion, and these women who were doing counseling were trying to tell them where -- illegal places, but keep them out of the bad illegal places. it's why the medical community has always been so supportive of abortion being legal. >> sarah, thank you very
